This handsome, heavy medal measures 1" as shown.  An endless (over the head) stainless steel curb chain is standard with the 1" medal. A smaller size, 3/4" medal (preferred by most ladies) is also available with a finer, 18" stainless curb chain.  The same medal is available in both sizes in a heavy 14 karat gold filled with or without a goldtone chain, or in solid 14 karat gold, without chain.  If the chains provided do not suit, order the medal without chain and check out our Neck Chains for other options, styles, and sizes.

Flip-top gift box is included.

St. Raymond Nonnatus -- "Nonnatus" means "not born."  Raymond's mother died in childbirth and he was delivered by caesarean section, thus the name,"Nonnatus" (non natus or not born).  He joined the Mercedarian order, which was formed to ransom Christians taken captive by Mohammedans.  He went to Algeria to ransom slaves and, when he ran out of money, ransomed himself in exchange for other Christians.  His order finally ransomed him and ordered him back to Spain, where he was made a Cardinal.  He died shortly thereafter in 1240.
